The McLean Breakaway Club
The McLean breakaway club is a practice club that can be used at home or at the driving range. It is a hinged iron that will break out of shape if the golfer makes a mistake in the swing. If the golfer has a poor takeaway, it will bend at a right angle so the swing cannot be completed. If the approach to the hitting zone is flawed, it will bend again. The same holds true if the follow-through is poor. The club identifies where the swing goes wrong so the golfer knows which part of his swing to work on.

SKLZ Practice Pod
Most golfers know they have to align squarely to the target, but it's easier said than done for many golfers. The SKLZ practice pod is a portable alignment guide that the player places at his feet. It shows where to put your feet and how far apart they should be from one another. You can use this in a friendly match until you learn exactly where to put your feet.

Golf Practice Cage
When you can't make it to the golf course or driving range, you can practice at home in a golf practice cage. This device looks a lot like a camping tent. It has a wide opening in the front through which you hit balls into a cage. This will help keep your swing honed and give you confidence when you play later on.
